My first post:
Template trimming 1" thick white ash with irregular grain on a router table. What's the better bit to use; flush trim carbide straight or a carbide spiral?

Richard Welcome to the forum; there are many here who can assist you getting what you want to do with a router. Just a reminder; there is more that can be achieved when the router is held in the plunge mode check out the material below.

Routing thick material with one cut does create problems especially at the end grain and using a spiral cutter will help. Personally I do not have a spiral cutter as I usually attempt this problem in the plunge mode taking smaller cute with the cutter controlled with the aid of template guide and template.

If you wish to contact me by email tomodonnell75(at)live(dot)com(dot)au and I may be able to answer any questions you want to put to me personally
